The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
February 18 @ 7:30 pm - February 21 @ 4:00 pm
Presented by Marion Civic Theatre, this musical is a riotous ride, complete with audience participation. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. Sundays 2pm matinee only. Plays: $12 adults, $10 seniors and students. Musicals $15 adults, $12 seniors and students. Studio Series $10, Children’s Theatre $8. Tickets available online.
